    Neo-Con Psychopath Bolton Frames Syria For Attack

    US Orders Syria to Do the Impossible
    by Paul Craig Roberts

    Is there a person anywhere in the world who still thinks there is an ounce of sanity in the Bush administration? If so, let that person read John Bolton's orders to Syria in the Jan. 24 online edition of the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz.

    Bolton is Bush's unconfirmed ambassador to the United Nations. Bolton, a neoconservative warmonger, has managed to get the UN Security Council on Jan. 23 to instruct Syria to disband and disarm the Lebanese militias. Bolton says, "I hope in Damascus they read it very carefully and then comply."

    How is Syria to meet this demand?

    Last year, Syria complied with U.S. demands to withdraw its troops from Lebanon. As Syria has no military presence in Lebanon, it could not disarm a local police force, much less the Shia militias that defeated the Israeli army, drove it out of Lebanon, and have representatives in the Lebanese parliament.

    After three years and unimaginable expense, the superpower American military has proved that it cannot disarm the recently formed Iraqi militias. Yet the idiot Bolton thinks puny Syria can disarm the Lebanese militias that defeated the brutal Israeli army!

    Syria was never in Lebanon as a conqueror or invader, as the U.S. is in Iraq and Israel is in the West Bank and Golan Heights. Syria was invited into Lebanon by the Lebanese government for peacekeeping purposes, adding the weight of its military to indigenous militias in order to create stability where U.S., Palestinian, and Israeli bungling had brought disorder and massive bloodshed.

    Until they were withdrawn, the Syrian troops were a counterweight to the Shia militias. Now that the Shia crescent is spreading from Iran through Iraq to Lebanon, the stupid neoconservatives are confronted with the error of their ways. The Bush administration was trying to set Syria up for U.S. attack by demanding that they withdraw from Lebanon. The neocons thought Syria would refuse and thereby become a target for demonization and invasion.

    Alas, the Syrians departed. And now the problem is how to turn back the Shia advance, which is increasing in power inside Lebanon as well through the Hezbollah and Amal movements. Bolton's solution is a ridiculous attempt to turn Syria into a neocon proxy and to set it at war with the militias. Otherwise, Bolton intends to damn Syria for "noncompliance" and again threaten them with U.S. invasion.

    It will be interesting to see who Syria fears most, the militias that triumphed over Israeli military might or the U.S. forces that have been defeated in Iraq.

    I wonder if Bush will be stupid like Hitler was and engage in a two front war ? Syria and Iran at the same time ? We will see if he was paying attention in history class

    Hell, we already are engaged in a two front war, albeit both of the so-called "low intensity" kind, as they say. You know, like Korea or Vietnam. Low-intesity warfare. I guess that means we're fighting against an "enemy" whose military power doesn't even come close to being one half of a tiny fraction as mighty as ours. Presumably Russia or China might be considered a "high intensity" conflict, were we to go to war against them. But we only like to pick on defenseless countries.

    That's a good point. It's interesting to note the similarities. Hitler was driven to commit catastrophic military blunders as a consequence of blind ideology. This led to an obstinate refusal to acknowledge the lessons of The Napoleonic Wars. So, it's no surprise that a blinkered ideologue such as Bush (who thinks he gets his marching orders directly from God) is making similar errors of judgment.

    Yep! The Russian winter took care of Napoleon AND Hitler. I don't recall who got closer to Moscow. I know Hitler was only 17 miles from it when the winter hit them. It's been awhile since I read Napoleon's history. Hitler, if he was smart, would have concentrated on his only enemy left prior to attacking Russia; Britain. It was a fanatical decision by Hitler that ultimately handed him the failure to invade Britain. It could arguably be said that, if Germany didn't attack Russia, it would be more of a stalemate between Germany and Britain.

    I guess Hitler had the same mentality as Bush does today. Pick on the apparent weaker foe to attack. Britain proved in the Battle of Britain that they wouldn't back down. And even if invaded, the British wouldn't have surrendered. But Britain alone, could have done very little to take on Germany by themselves. Without the help of America and Russia, Germany, I would speculate, wouldn't have fallen. The two front war is what depleted Germany's resources, not to mention the fanatical decisions that Hitler was continuing to make in spite of the better judgements of his German generals. This is why there were so many attempts to assassinate Hitler throughout his rule in Germany. Will history repeat itself ?
